Regional Pump School in Hartford, CT A Huge Sucess

In conjunction with Blake Equipment, Cornell Pump held a Regional Pump School in Hartford, Connecticut on December 3rd, 2014. More than 60 municipal water and waste water operators took part in the class. Pump curves, system design, and proper installation were presented. And the class participants got to see Ted Wiese, Quality Manager and Ryan Bothell, Assembler disassemble a pump. The class loved being able to ask Ted and Ryan technical questions about the construction.

Thank you again to MDC for the space to host the event in Hartford, and to Blake Equipment for their efforts in making the school a huge success.

New Self Priming Pumps from Cornell

Cornell Pump introduces two new pump options to the self-priming series. The STL and STH pumps expand the range of application options for self-primers with innovative design.
The 8STL pump is designed to run at 1800 RPM so that it can be directly connected to an SAE engine without the need for any adaptation. The higher RPM operation makes the 8STL pump better suited to portable pumping applications and rental pumps.
The 3STH pump is designed for high pressure/high head applications. The 3STH pump is capable of reaching heads as high as 250 ft. The pump features heavy-duty bearings, shaft and impeller for a longer pump life. Additional sizes of the STH pump, including a 4STH and 6STH are currently being completed. All variations offer greater performance and higher speeds (up to 2200 RPM) than other similar pumps on the market.

Both the STL and STH pumps are manufactured with high performance materials, including ductile iron wet end parts, shafts made from 17-4 Stainless Steel, and Cornell’s exclusive Cycloseal® system for longer seal life and grit removal.
Datasheets for both the 3STH and the 8STL are available from the Cornell Pump website.
